THE FUNKSTAMATICS: Koekwaus (100K Horns Mix)

FUNKSTAMATICS:  Koekwaus (100K Horns Mix)Looks like The Funkstamatics (a.k.a. the band formerly known as Euro Cinema) have been having rather a lot of success on Spotify these days recently clocking up an impressive one hundred thousand plays of their 2013 single Koekwaus.
